A non-technical colleague of mine who is in San Francisco/Oakland until Friday urgently needs a mega168 micro flashed, but has struggled in the past to do this successfully.

He's an Aussie, so that's understandable.

Could one of my fellow board members please help out in exchange for a bottle of fine Australian wine and truckloads of gratitude?

Thanks in hopeful anticipation.

Ron :D

That's a great suggestion, Paul.
So, I could run AVR Studio 4 on my machine and take control of an STK500 in California?
I'll take a closer look at that package.

Or even a Sparkfun Pocket AVR programmer? https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9825

At least that wouldn't need a USB/serial cable.

No you run the programs on his PC which you remote control he watches while the PC gets a mind of its own
He just needs to plug things in and load teamviewer you also run teamviewer on your machine
Once teamviewer is running you could install the free version of bascom on his pc and use it to program with

OK, I understand now.
Since the code is larger than 4k, he couldn't use the free version, so I would imagine that he could install AVR Studio 4 and I could load the compiled code into it from a transferred file.
Is this not the same functionality as Windows Remote Desktop?

You can compile the source on your pc and upload the binary with Teamviewer also!
You can burn the binary larger 4K, but you can't compile it in free version...

best, michael


Edit:
It is also an easy way for flashing, to use the "AVRCommandLineTools".
You can start flashing by clicking a Batch file.
But you must own a STK500 compatible Hardware.

I made a zip file, containing all neccessary items.
Unzip http://www.mediafire.com/download/41s5msems439lze/__DIAMEX_Programmer.zip into empty folder.
Unzip AVRCommandLineTools.zip
Run AVRCommandLineTools.exe (one time to install driver dll's)

Edit the FLASH.bat and change Controller and Filename for your needs. (maybe a "pause" in second line could be usefull!)
Save edited file and doubleclick for flashing.

good luck
